The hate phase was intensified when I was transitioning into teen-hood. I experienced a phase of growth, which was challenging at some points. I believe […]

The Mystery Blogger Award

I’ve always seen this mystery blogger post on so many blogs, I didn’t know I would actually get nominated! It was a bright and sunny day (no actually it wasn’t, we’re in the rainy season people) when I opened Uzzy Mami‘s latest post which piqued my interest. I read through it, smiled, and then saw […]

Mind on the Month: June

P.S. I would firstly like to thank God, and also my genes (passed down by the ‘rents), for my wonderful eyebrows. I appreciate you all, and I hope my eyebrows never lack. I couldn’t find my eyebrow pencil before taking this photo, and it turns out I didn’t need it anyway! All I did was […]

I like this, but then there are some repeated occurrences which annoy me to no end. Keep in mind that when I say online store, I don’t mean stores like the really popular ones. I’m talking the smaller yet upcoming ones which may not necessarily be an ‘official’ brand, but a side hustle for the owners. Here are three most prominent ones.

Confession: I Don’t Love God

Every Sunday feels the same. I wake up early enough, but then proceed to waste time doing a plethora of unnecessary things instead of getting ready for church. I then am filled with regret as I rush to find a scarf to wear over my head, rush to pack my things into my small bag […]
